Did you know? Wellan’s Elementary Program was first named a “Family Favorite” in 2018 when the school was still named Newton Montessori.
Wellan Montessori School is an independent, all-gender school with an age range of 15 months – Grade 8. Located in Newton Centre, the school draws families from diverse backgrounds in surrounding communities. Wellan students benefit from the unique balance of freedom and responsibility offered by the school’s Montessori-Progressive curriculum, which promotes both individually-paced academic progress and collaborative project-based learning. Empathy, community service, innovation, and social justice are emphasized throughout the curriculum. During the school day, students enjoy specials that span visual and performing arts, woodworking, technology, and more; students also have the option to enroll in after-school enrichment and athletic programs. Graduates demonstrate strong executive function skills that enable them to succeed at Greater Boston’s top public and independent schools. Financial assistance is available.
